13th Colony Southern Corn Whiskey

I'll start off by saying that this is really tasty.  The first thing that I wondered when I saw this is why it was called Corn Whiskey instead of Bourbon.  Bourbon Enthusiast speculated a couple of years ago that they aged the whiskey in used bourbon barrels.  I expect that they are correct.  It looks like white wine in the glass, but it has some welcomed roughness of flavor.  It is bottled at 95 proof, and I usually recommend cutting at that strength.  This one is perfect neat.  I've tried it in a julep and a Manhattan and feel that gets lost when mixed.  Love it as a sipper.

Lots and lots of corn with some rough oak edges and heat in the finish.  Recommended at $30.
